New video by Michael; The Factory | Neoden 8 (K1830) Maintenance & Gantry Exploration

This week in The Factory we’re doing some maintenance on our Pick-n-Place machine and taking the opportunity to have a look at the hardware in the gantry.

The manufacturer sent us an air-tube upgrade kit that will supposedly perform better. The tubes fork from each nozzle, presumably for high and low pressure connections. While the cover’s off, we have a gratifying poke around and take a look at what else lies under the hood.


What do you guys do about lubricating the gantry system? At my work we apply a little machine oil to the rails but I’ve noticed the main Y axis has zerk fittings.
